the senses

 

We experience using the tools of our senses. I made the senses into 1970's style graphic posters. I did this by using expressive bright colours, poster blockiness of colour and trying to paint the portraits beautifully, clean, bright and simple. With these painting I am shouting, "Go have these experiences too!" I am advertising so you will want to go outside into nature, feel alive and enjoy your life experiences to the fullest.

touch snakes that you catch as they swim in the sea.
taste apples off abandoned orchard trees.
see bugs you trap at night with light and jars.
hear the sound you make with a kelp horn.
smell the garden of fragrant roses.

This work is a branch of my Experiencial project.
